Obama and the rest of the Dementedcrats eventually want to do away with the 2nd Amendment.

no, no, no. They got it at a gunshow. They just had to state they were a citizen and not a felon.

See how easy it is to get grenade launchers, machine guns, and anti-aircraft weapons???

Scary. They're building a good case for the sheeple.

We will need those weapons to protect ourselves from the Aztlan racial cleansing...

maybe 36% of the guns seized have come from America, but what they aren't telling you is that some of those guns make have come from their own military since American guns are issued to the Mexican Army are American:

Tens of thousands of Mexican Army soldies have gone AWOL and joined the cartels. I’m pretty sure they bring their guns with them. (mostly made in the US, by the way, so I guess that must be our fault too). We actually trained the Zetas at Fort Bragg, and now they’re the ultimate cartel death squad. I suppose that’s our fault also.

Obama in Mexico - It is all our gun’s fault. « Monster Hunter Nation

Now you have Mexico's president telling us that we need to compromise our Second Amendment rights to help them with their problem.

Here's a solution. Lock down the Mexican border. Zero commerce can go through without a thorough search. Nobody without a proper visa can go either way.

But Mexico doesn't want that because that would hurt the illegals that they help get into this country everyday.
Even if this were true there is better news on the horizon. With Obama in charge these same weapons will soon say "Made in China" or "Hecho in China"

Bingo, koolaid with plenty of BS stirred in. Whatever percentage of guns being shipped from the US are coming from the illegal alien mexican gang members here squatting from mexico. Obama needs to get his head out of Calderon's and mexico's anus, not only is it embarrassing, it's affecting the flow of oxygen to his brain.

Default Solutions

Weapons now illegal in the US such as automatic weapons and certain assault rifles are not being lawfully obtained in the US for transfer to Mexico. In any event the solution is to close and secure the border.....build the damn fence.

Why doesn't Mexico just make it illegal to posses a firearm, problem solved.

Since they can't find Chapo Guzman or any of the big drug lords, did they just ask them to report on from where they import their weapons in some anonymous survey?

Besides, why shouldn't the people of Mexico have the same rights to buy and own guns as we have here in the USA?

The Second Amendment may even be more about the rights of the citizens to overthrow tyranny. Why shouldn't we want that for our neighbors?
